The games children play
The UK is the world's third largest market for video and computer games, generating sales of over one billion pounds a year. Amid hot debate, computer games are set to enter the classroom. This programme investigates whether teachers can turn them into good educational tools and indeed if they should. Find out what this powerful technology can do for education as top academics and practitioners from the US and the UK reveal its real potential.
Games - two KS3 examples
At Our Lady's Catholic High School in Lancashire, Adrian Gormally works with his colleague Mary Cooch to bring games based learning into his Yr7 geography class. They use customisable games which they either have a licence to use or which are available free online. The class begins with a revision game on climate change which the students play together on the interactive whiteboard. If the students answer the multiple choice question correctly, they have the chance to add to their score by taking a penalty shoot-out goal. The students then work in groups on the school's VLE to play a drag-and-drop game also focused on climate change.

Using an imaginary case study, Mike Baker asks an expert panel of pracititioners how they would tackle escalating gang related incidents within their school. How involved should teachers get with troublesome pupils? How do you deal with the threat of violence to you or others without putting yourself in danger? The panel, including headteachers Philip O Hear and Richard Ewen, diversity expert Rosemary Campbell-Stephens, and Graham Robb, interim chair of the Youth Justice Board, wrestle with dilemmas posed by an imaginary pupil. He lives in a gang-dominated estate and faces intimidation both on the street and at school. How can the violence be curbed and how can vulnerable pupils be dissuaded from signing up to the dominant gang culture?
This programme has been made for early years practitioners to show to children. Designed to promote and inspire creative role-play in an early years setting it takes a considered look at what happens in a busy petrol station and garage and displays in detail the processes that take place. The events featured include filling a car with petrol, using a car wash, testing the brakes of a car on a rolling road, raising a car on a ramp and inspecting underneath and pumping up a flat tyre. The programme is divided into clearly marked chapters to enable the practitioner to use the programme in smaller parts. Except for an introductory question, the programme contains no narration and the pictures are accompanied only by actuality sound, leaving room for practitioners to make their own individual comments.

|Garden History Society occasional paper (Occasional paper (Garden History Society))|
We follow The Ground Force Gardening Club at Costessey High School in Norwich. They've been challenged to transform the garden of a local resident in just one day. Now arthritic and immobile, she was a keen gardener in her youth and the garden still has the remnants of its previous life, with overgrown vegetable patches and an old pathway. Science Teacher Pauline Williamson has run the gardening club for the past four years. She's helped pupils grow wild flowers for special display at the Chelsea Flower show. Pupils will be taking plants they've grown the garden. Working with the team and supervising the garden transformation will be the gardening social enterprise Mow and Grow , which was set up in Lowestoft to help council tenants who are unable to look after their gardens because of ill health or disability.
Gary Tuddenham is the best young cabinet maker in the world, having won the gold medal for cabinet making at WorldSkills 2007.In this video we see Gary in his workplace, a bespoke furniture makers in Hampshire where the ethos is everything has to be perfect.For Gary the WorldSkills competition is a home away from home; building complex, one-off pieces of furniture is something that he is used to.In Japan, Gary was up against 21 other competitors from around the world. His skills, technique and impressive ability ensured him success.

There are estimated to be more than 25,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teachers in the UK. Research has shown that 99% of them are too scared to come out and 4 out of 5 gay teachers have experienced homophobic abuse at work. This programme follows the lives of five inspirational gay teachers to find out how they cope with school. One teacher tells of his experiences dealing with a headteacher he felt was homophobic, whilst another teacher struggles to come out to his class. Is it true that there's an endemic culture of homophobia in schools or are schools supporting their LGBT staff?
Gaze aversion (Proven to work.)
Research shows that children and adults concentrate better on a problem or puzzle when looking to one side. Find out how to use gaze aversion in class with this KS1 example. This technique, proven to aid concentration, is demonstrated by pupils at Heather Primary School in Leicestershire. We see how some children naturally look to one side but others need to be trained to avert their gaze. The technique has been shown to help all ages when working out a problem, partly because it simply allows more time for thought. All the techniques in this series are supported by research, which is explained by Philippa Cordingley, director of the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education.

This lesson created by Natasha Nicol, Head of English at Peacehaven Community College, helps students build their confidence in writing an extended piece of work. In the featured lesson, the students are writing a review of the film The Others, but the lesson format can be used for any extended writing piece. The lesson starts with paired work, getting the students to develop their vocabulary in a synonym competition. It's then into the main part of the lesson where the class is broken down into groups, each with the responsibility of writing one part of the review.Finally one member of each group reads their paragraph back to the class. All resources required to run this lesson are attached, including a lesson plan, instructions for writing a film review, shared review writing forms and some film review snippets of the film to get the students started.
Four imaginative great lesson ideas linked to GCSE geography topics. Mal Burden demonstrates two ideas for teaching population. One idea involves using jelly babies to demonstrate population structure and changes. His second lesson idea is aimed at helping students understand the reasons behind migration by getting them to move round the class in response to changing conditions.Maria Larkin demonstrates a great lesson idea for helping students to get to grips with the idea of different groups in society . Maria shows how role play can help get students to think about who these different groups might be.Graham Goldup demonstrates the benefits of using a kinaesthetic learning activity when teaching the GCSE Unit Climate, Ecosystems and People. Groups of students are given the task of working out characteristics of animals and plants in different ecosystems and then use modelling clay to make models and explain what they ve done and why.
Great Lesson Ideas that can be applied to a number of different topics on the GCSE history curriculum.Head of department Emma Parker introduces both a starter activity for a lesson on opposition to apartheid and Hula Hoop History, a lesson idea aimed at providing pupils with an overview of what it was like for Jews living in Nazi Germany. The students place cards listing anti-Jewish laws in a large hula hoop Venn diagram to encourage them to evaluate how different areas of life were affected by the anti-Jewish laws. Steve Toms demonstrates how he uses a Role Play Press Conference when covering the topic of international opposition to apartheid with higher-attaining students taking the roles of delegates.Sophie Welch introduces the idea of helping students learn to use a Learning Pyramid, an organised structure to gather information from sources.
Team Challenge was created by Gary Morris, AST Maths teacher at William Parker Sport College, Hasting. It is a revision lesson that is used as a means of assessing students understanding of a recently completed module of work. The lesson is extremely popular and plays to the students competitive nature. It works particularly well with C/D borderline students, having had a dramatic effect on the results the students get.Team Challenge is a format that can be applied to many different mathematical topics, but in this featured lesson Gary is using it to assess his students understanding in statistics.All resources required to run this lesson are attached, including a lesson plan, excel score sheet and the statistical question and answer sheets.

Genetics and medicine
Susie Murray has a rare inherited heart condition called long QT, which if left untreated can lead to rapid heart beats, blackouts and even sudden death. Long QT is described as a single-gene condition but geneticist Dr Bill Newman explains that there are at least eight genes that can be involved. Eczema is a common and complex condition, caused by both genetic and environmental factors. Professor Irwin McLean tells us that it is only since the arrival of large-scale genomic tests that scientists have been able to investigate all the factors involved and identify new genes contributing to eczema. The latest genetic research provides powerful tools to understand the causes of different illnesses.This programme is part of the Nowgen Schools Genomics Programme, which aims to narrow the gap between genomics research and classroom genetics.
Genetics and medicine (Secondary science.)
A group of the UK's leading experts in genetics, medics and bioethics discuss how genomic research may help in understanding personality and behaviour traits. The understanding of genetic knowledge has changed dramatically over the past three decades with the ability to investigate a person's entire genetic sequence. Dr Ralph Levinson, from the Institute of Education, chairs a discussion with Professors Steve Jones, Jane Worthington, Dian Donnai and John Harris about whether an increased knowledge of genomes will help scientists to understand human personality and behaviour. This video has been produced with Teachers TV as part of the Nowgen Schools Genomics Programme. Educational resources are currently being developed to support teaching and learning using this video. They will be available here in late September 2010.

Globalisation is the current hot topic in geography. This programme explores the key concepts that will have real use for teachers. Diane Swift from the Geographical Association introduces globalisation and explains its significance.Saskia Sassen is a world-renowned professor who coined the term global city . She explains how London is a prime site of globalisation and what to look out for in your city. Professor Danny Dorling explains how immigration and migration is central to globalisation, as he specialises in race and equality. Danny and his team map the changing social, political and medical geographies through the innovative Worldmapper project.

Modern methods of studying geography encourages the development of enquiry skills. The lesson explored in this programme offers children an immediate chance to develop these as well as giving them the opportunity to vividly use their imaginations.Debbie King, a Key Stage 1 teacher at Horwood & Newton Tracey Primary School in north Devon is shown teaching a unit of work for KS1 geography called At the Seaside . It can be taught across one day or over a period of weeks. Debbie evaluates the unit with David Weatherley, Devon Curriculum Services Geography Advisor and Alison Alldridge, Geography Coordinator at the school. The lesson features enquiry, imagination, and evaluation of images of the seaside. Geography is then combined with literacy as the children fit words to the pictures and write postcards using geographic vocabulary.

Find out about the geology of glaciers as four intrepid teachers go on the field-trip of a lifetime in Antarctica.The first half of the programme looks at the geography of glaciers, using the case studies of glaciers in both Norway and Antarctica to show what it's like to be on a glacier and the environment. It also looks in more detail at Antarctica, and the geography of the continent.The second part then goes on to look at the experience of some British teachers conducting geographical field work in Antarctica. The teachers, while studying the abundance of cryoconite holes on the glacier, discover how tough geography field work can be in the Antarctic climate.

The geological mappers
Inside Science is a secondary science series following the success of Scientific Eye and Science in Focus.Inside Science spends a week with the British Geological Survey Team as they hop into their 4x4s and navigate treacherous sand dunes to produce a geological map of the entire United Arab Emirates.Why does a country need to have a geological map? What does it reveal about the fundamental geology of a region? How were the vast oil deposits in the Middle East originally formed? Will geological mapping help to find new reservoirs of oil or new mineral deposits? What tools and techniques are used to do the mapping? How will the maps be used by prospectors and builders? These are some of the questions that are addressed in the course of dune-hopping adventures with three leading members of the British Geological Survey Team based in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

At Scotts Primary, Hornchurch, Gary Clapperton is revising the geometry of 2 dimensional shapes with his Year 6 class. He is using digital photographs of the local area that the children have taken. These have been saved on his interactive white board which is used extensively. Gary is making a distinction between explicit shapes, those that can be clearly identified and drawn onto the photographs he is using in his lesson (the real life story ) and implicit shapes, those that can be found by mathematical abstraction (the maths story ). The children draw round the explicit shapes on their own photographs. Some demonstrate to the class on the interactive white board which promotes a class discussion to identify parallelograms and isosceles triangles. The properties of rectangles are revised, relating them to the ratio of the length of the sides. Gary reiterates the properties of triangles using ones children have found in their photographs during group work.

George Ward spicy farm pulao (Chef challenge)
Chef Peter Vaughan is on a mission to get children involved in growing and cooking good food that they can share with their friends. He visits Rowde Primary School and their wonderful vegetable garden run by chair of governors Amanda Housby. His challenge is to help the children make a tasty soup using only the vegetables that they have grown and picked that morning.Peter is joined by teacher Mandy Wood in her Year 5 class and sets up his equipment, including chopping boards, knives and a portable cooker. He has lots of tips on safety for this age group and soon they are confidently preparing the soup and mixing the dough for the soda bread.As the last ingredients go into the pot, headteacher David Ball presents Peter with his prize four-pound onion to use and Peter decorates the soda bread with giant onion rings! Later the soup and bread are judged a great success and as Peter remarks, it's what Gordon Ramsay would call a good service.

An expert gives advice on how to write a winning personal statement, from what to think about before you begin writing, to how to sell your skills and abilities to help boost your teaching career. Angela Baron, an adviser on engagement and organisation development at the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development, shares the key things you should consider as you begin to write your personal statement, with a view to getting an interview. She offers advice on the best way to write a personal statement, what to include, and whether you should use the same text for each application.
Get that job ... the demonstration lesson
The demonstration lesson is becoming an accepted part of the application process for teachers. But it's shorter than the average lesson at usually just twenty minutes.Education consultant Sara Bubb joins the NQT Induction Programme in Lambeth where she talks to three teachers about their concerns and experiences.There's planning; not knowing the children or their names; or how well the children will cope with a different teacher.Sara offers tips on making the lesson stand out for all the right reasons.
Ridgewood School in Doncaster is successfully recruiting girls to courses which in the past have been dominated by boys. This programmes offers an insight into how they are achieving this. Ridgewood, a specialist engineering college, adopts a number of strategies to make subjects like engineering attractive to girls. It keeps workshop areas clean and professional; has themed assemblies with fancy dress and drama emphasise the role of successful women in engineering and science; and high profile women from male-dominated industries are invited into school as guest speakers. The school has also worked hard to keep in mind a good gender balance of staff when recruiting teachers. Most importantly, however, the school's staff explain how all this has been achieved without alienating boys from the subject. The strategy appears to be working well - the school records attainment levels in GCSE well above average - and there's a broadly equal gender split on targeted courses.
Getting kids to read
The video follows a high school teacher as she demonstrates how to effectively guide a class of English Language Learners to explore literary genres and encourage them to strengthen their English skills through a fondness for reading.
Getting parents into schools (Working with parents.)
A headteacher talks about ways of developing strong relationships between parents and schools. Paramjit Bhutta, from Stepney Green School, discusses how his school has managed to conenct with parents. He discusses how once parents start to engage with the school, it builds their confidence, makes them feel important and enables them to gain the skills they need to support their child outside of school hours.
Getting the priorities right
Primary headteacher Frances Bussy discusses her experience of CPD with a group of senior professionals. They agree that an open collaborative environment which encourages professional dialogue is key but staff have to feel comfortable and be willing to participate. Involving all the staff and getting them to think outside the bubble makes a huge difference and is also critical for retaining teachers. This is a particular challenge for small schools where staff might feel their careers are limited. Frances is stunned by the perceptive comments made by Year 6 children at their exit interviews and stresses the benefits of listening to children across the school. Giving staff options within the School Improvement Plan has also been successful. Individual choice gives ownership and encourages professional responsibility. The experts conclude that good professional development can take many forms.
Follow two Primary NQTs, Sandra Abdulai-Saani and David Freeborn, as they refine their teaching skills, from behaviour management to PE, as well as focusing on their specific assessment targets. The programme provides insight into the typical problems that most NQTs experience, whilst induction expert Sara Bubb advises on what situations to expect and how to get through the year successfully. David has had a year of teacher training experience with his PGCE and Sandra has had three years with her education degree. Both have chosen to work in South London primary schools. With the stress of the second term assessment behind them, Sandra and David focus on personal targets. For Sandra, this means ensuring she always has a plenary and for David, this means following every lesson with a self-assessment task for the children. Discover if Sandra and David's continued efforts will be enough to get them through their first year.

Gifted and talented
Careerwise is the series that throws a magnifying glass over every aspect of a teacher's career.This week we look at the gifted and talented programme. We explore the role of gifted and talented coordinators: what do they do and what can the role bring to your career? Presenter Peter Curran chats to two leading experts about the programme, and we visit schools to see how the gifted and talented programme works.
Gifted and talented
The government requires that 10% of pupils at every primary and secondary school are identified as gifted or talented and placed on a register. This film investigates how staff at Sacred Heart Primary School in Hastings and the nearby Helenswood Performing Arts College go about identifying their gifted and talented pupils. It looks at the provision in place for these children and at the role governors have played in implementing and monitoring the G & T programme. Higher order thinking skills, open ended investigations, lunchtime and after-school clubs and, at Sacred Heart, a challenge corner in each classroom, are key to the success of the G&T programmes. Governors at both schools play a crucial monitoring role.

The bullying of girls by other girls can sometimes be dismissed as verbal spats. However experts such as psychologist Val Besag and Kidscape's CEO Michelle Elliot, who feature in this programme, are clear that it can be a major blight on the health and happiness of girls and needs to treated seriously by schools. Because girls can be more subtle bullies than boys, using exclusion and verbal weapons rather than fists and fights, their actions can be more difficult to spot and change. Experts and practitioners offer helpful tips for spotting bullying amongst girls, and early intervention techniques. The programme shows peer-mentoring in action at both primary and secondary level, looks at a creative drama workshop which helps girls explore what to do when faced with bullying incidents in the classroom or playground, and we see how one school is using learning mentors to run anti-bullying sessions to forewarn and forearm girls against the actions of bullies.
Girls in a girls' school
Susan Higgins, headteacher of Parliament Hill girls school, believes that while the past decade has focused the gender debate on boys, there is still a job of work to be done around girls and achievement. Middle-class girls and girls from families with high aspirations may be doing well, but there is a culture of low aspirations in other groups, which schools need to tackle. Her school's intake includes students from a ward with some of the highest national incidences of domestic violence, plus a population whose diversity raises a range of gender issues for girls.This film explores how the school tackles some of these issues and seeks to promote ambition and achievement amongst all its girls.
Girls in a mixed school
When Linda Austin started teaching in the 1980s, the women's movement was challenging an education status quo that, the movement claimed, systematically discriminated against girls. In 1990 Linda became the first headteacher of Swanlea School in the East End of London, whose intake then and now is dominated by boys (a common situation in areas where there are a number of local girls-only schools). This programme shows how the school has taken steps to ensure that, though its girls are in a numerical minority, it is not an oppressed minority. For example, the school organises a number of all-boy tutor groups, so every mixed class has broadly equal numbers of boys and girls. Throughout the school, the girls voices are heard loud and clear, and they have every opportunity to fully achieve their educational potential.
|The girls' own paper|
At the Moulton School, maths teacher Nicola Lamb has a problem. Two talkative Year 10 girls are constantly demanding her attention and she feels powerless to resist them. Nicola's anxiety is compounded by her self-perception. She fears that despite her status and experience - she has been teaching the subject for over seven years, she may be just like them. In the programme, John Bayley advises Nicola to ration her visits to their table, rewarding good behaviour with her attention but starving the girls of her presence when they do things off task. The following day, Nicola teaches the same class again and puts Bayley's advice in to practice. Her resolution and determination are rewarded when, without her constant attention, the girls have little else to do but get on with their work. Nicola is delighted with John's help, admitting that as a result she feels far less pressurised in lessons and more able to spread her attention, targeting those in need.

Give yourself a break
How to avoid wasting energy dealing with every behaviour issue. Behaviour guru Sue Cowley coaches a primary teacher how to get his pupils to manage their own behaviour.Sue Cowley observes James Bird via hidden cameras as he teaches a science lesson about solubility to his Year 4 class at Greenholm Primary in Birmingham. She is able to coach James through a hidden earpiece not to react to every nuance of fluctuating noise levels and perceived off task activity. This begins to allow James some breathing space during the lesson and lets the children take on responsibility for managing their own behaviour. Sue suggests asking pupils to help introduce the opening experiment. She also advises lowering his voice and waiting for silence which helps vary the pace of his teaching. As the lesson progresses James is coached to draw back from intervening at every opportunity and to let the children get on with their group work.
Giving it back to the children
John Bayley is at Greycourt School in Ham, south-west London, working with new head of Modern Languages, Anna Clarke. Anna is observing fast-track teacher Chris Rhodes who's heading for management himself in a couple of years. But Chris's confident and fast-moving teaching style is leaving some students behind, and Anna feels he may benefit from introducing moreindependent learning with his top set Year 10s.

Six clips to be used as Global Citizenship lesson starters in the classroom, presented in one programme. The programme features different aspects of emergency relief and other aspects of work by the International Red Cross, including child soldiers in Sierra Leone, disaster prevention in Bangladesh, delivering aid in Afghanistan and landmine victims in Bosnia. Please preview the content of this programme before showing it to your class.
Secondary teachers evaluate recommended teaching resources for Global Citizenship: a school linking site, a toolkit to assess impact on students, and a set of ethnic face masks.Resource Review gives valuable information about branded teaching resources, as well as ideas and thoughts about resources from other sources. In this edition we re looking in detail at three resources recommended by teachers and support staff to help incorporate Global Citizenship in the classroom: Global Gateway - a British Council run government funded website which helps establish educational partnerships abroad; How Do We Know It's Working? - a toolkit of various activities for measuring change in pupils knowledge, values and attitudes as Global Citizens;Trestle Masks - a set of eight ethnic face masks for students to wear.

The global dimension
The new secondary curriculum encourages a global dimension to mainstream education. So how can concepts more familiar to Citizenship or geography be woven into a coherent approach including other subject areas? Prince Henry's in Otley has had an international emphasis for years. But they've moved on from tokenistic theme days to threading global issues across the timetable; we see global themes of Lord of the Flies discussed in a GCSE English lesson. Meadowhead School in Sheffield are earlier in their process; Alison Huntley from Leeds Development Education Centre works with teachers to develop their ideas. Year 7 maths use a trading game to practice surface area calculations, and a history lesson compares life under William the Conqueror to present-day Congo. Teachers discuss outcomes and the need to collaborate across subject areas. Teachers in both schools state their commitment to the key purpose - to prepare pupils for life in the global community.

Global online conferencing, hand puppets, interactive French
Primary teachers evaluate three recommended teaching resources for Global Citizenship: global online conferencing, hand puppets, and an interactive French CD-ROM.The resources have been recommended by teachers themselves. Year 6 teacher Debbie Norbury recommends iNET, a global online conferencing system for schools. Year 1 teacher Rachel Furness's class enjoys the use of puppets, and Rigolo, an interactive French CD-ROM is suggested for helping to teach global citizenship by PPA teachers Matthew Windsor and Claire Owen. Teachers from a variety of schools around the country comment on these resources plus reveal some of their own favourites.

Going for headship
Getting promoted to headship is considered tough going for senior black teachers. We visit two north London secondary schools, one with a black headteacher, Luke Burton, who was promoted to headship after one interview, and his experience is contrasted with that of deputy head Guya Persaud at a neighbouring school who has so far failed to gain a headship despite making over fifty applications. The film also shows the work of Rosemary Campbell Stephens, lead trainer with London's Investing in Diversity programme for black and minority ethnic teachers who want to go for senior posts in schools.
More and more schools are establishing links with other schools around the world, with benefits for all involved. At Godwin Junior school in east London there's a real enthusiasm for all things global. It's the result of being twinned with a school in Jamaica. The highlight of the school day is a video link with Jamaica. The London children talk to their friends in Kingston about fish and chips, football, wild animals and the Olympics. But twinning isn't just for inner city schools. Faringdon Community College in rural Oxfordshire is hosting a visit from its partner school in Uganda. The two schools are working on a joint project about food sustainability, and discover that they have a lot to learn from each other. The visitors take a food technology class and show the Faringdon students how to cook a typical Ugandan meal.
Going Green follows the stories of two schools where dedication and hard work are giving the staff and pupils a chance to help the environment. Both schools demonstrate their own approaches to going green. Kingsmead Primary School in Cheshire has been purpose built to be as sustainable as possible. At Dorothy Stringer High School in East Sussex, pupils and staff converted an unused outbuilding into an eco-centre from which a number of environmental projects are run.
Going to town
Richard Gerver is headteacher at Grange Primary in Long Eaton, Nottingham. He and his staff have given the children their own town, Grangeton, with a museum, shop, café, radio and TV station, even a town council with an elected Mayor. Three years ago our Key Stage 2 scores were all below 50% and our Panda results were all E stars. Now our SATs results are all in the high 80s to 100%, and our Panda scores are As and A*. The biggest problem was disaffection amongst the pupils. Children didn't have an idea why they were learning, and this led to low morale, says Richard Gerver. Now the children are excited by coming to school to work in their Grangeton jobs, and can see a direct link between what they are being taught in the curriculum and its application in the real world. It's really good, we get to speak French, not a lot of people our age get to work in a café but we do and it's really good. Georgie, head waitress for the language café, aged 11.

Sue Gilroy is confined to a wheelchair but is proving there's nothing she can't do in front of a classroom or behind a table tennis table. As a Year 3 teacher at Shawlands Primary in Barnsley she specialises in science and music, and adapts her teaching methods to suit her abilities and her wheelchair. As a table tennis player she's won the Commonwealth gold medal twice and the British title nine times as well as a string of European titles. In this programme she explains how she's overcome prejudice and disease to be a teacher and a champion.
Give children a playground focus for the week, this might be sharing a piece of new equipment or exhibiting a certain type of behaviour. Adults award pupils a golden ticket for adhering to the task, and they are entered into a prize draw.

|Gonzaga law review|
In 1938 and 1939 ten thousand Jewish refugee children were saved from a life of continuous persecution at home, but forced to part with family and friends, to travel with the Kindertransport to safety in the UK. They came alone because the British Government had agreed to take them but not their parents.This moving and powerful film tells the story of the struggle they faced being uprooted from home and coming to Britain to try and continue their lives. We hear from some of the children themselves, and a teacher working in one of the British schools they ended up studying in, and investigate the role played by foster homes, and by schools, which provided stability and security in their damaged lives.
Goodbye SATs, hello assessment
Aston Tower, Birmingham, serves the inner city. The year 2 teachers are anxious about how they can accurately build up a picture of children's skills at the end of KS1. They've worked with Maths consultant Val Worcester to design active assessment opportunities. In shape, Melanie works with a whole class. Each has a shape fan so they can make a visual response to the class puppet's (Melanie s) questions. She encourages discussion with a smaller number of focus children. In money, Vanessa works with a small group on an activity inspired by The Great Pet Sale . They use real coins to pay for the pets, adding the coin values together in pairs. In calculation, a group is throwing bean bags at printed numbers. They add the numbers mentally or with the support of resources they must choose for themselves. In capacity, celebrating Eid has presented a challenge. The children use water to find out how much juice they need to fill 30 party cups. We see how teachers assess progress.
The ability to select just-right books is a key element in developing confident, successful, independent readers. Gail starts this mini-lesson with Joan's K-2 multiage students by modeling how she picks a pair of shoes that are a good fit for her. Having engaged the class, the sisters show how to use a similar five-step process to select appropriate books for a Daily Five book box: look at the book, consider the purpose and decide, am I interested in it? Do I comprehend it? Do I know most of the words? They show examples of successful and unsuccessful matches to clarify the children's understanding.
At Lilian Baylis School it's the Year 10 AGM, the annual opportunity for students to raise a range of issues that concern them. But headteacher Gary Philips is growing increasingly frustrated with the familiar preoccupation with uniform and school bags. The school's pastoral committee, which regularly reviews the progress of the large number of vulnerable children who attend the school, discusses specific cases, and despite the backs-against-the-wall mentality of being on the DCSF National Challenge hit-list of schools facing the possibility of closure if they drop below 30% A*-C GCSE including English and maths, there's some positive news for staff just before the Christmas break. The most recent results put English and maths in the top 10% of schools nationally.
Good practice in two schools
A primary school in Bradford and a secondary school in Oldham employ a range of approaches to promote community cohesion. At Allerton Primary School in Bradford headteacher Sharon Lambert has focused on breaking down barriers in the community by creating a welcoming atmosphere for all parents. Lead teacher on community cohesion Meg Henry supports Year 5 teacher Janet Keefe and bilingual teaching assistant Nelofar Khan to plan and deliver a lesson on identity. At Breeze Hill School in Oldham, headteacher Bernard Phillips uses creative transition projects, such as drumming classes, to bring students from different backgrounds together. New student supporters ensure that EAL students are helped to settle and integrate into the school community, and staff such as TA Dave Hibbert are recruited from the local area to help make the school a big part of the community.
A good read
Varjak Paw won the Smarties Prize Gold Award; but what makes it such a good book? The author, SF Said, spends an afternoon with Year 4 teacher Carl Taylor and his class at Applegarth Junior School, Croydon. All big fans, the children introduce the book for us and seize the opportunity to ask SF about his inspirations. The children explain their identification with some of the characters; Guardian critic and CLPE co-director Julia Eccleshare comments on the strengths of these books in particular and on the role of fiction in children's lives. SF deconstructs some of Dave McKean's powerful and cinematic illustrations, and explains some of the roots and resonances of the big themes of trust, authority and friendship. Discussion ranges from gang war and fascism to the muppets as he and Carl do the voices and read aloud to the children, who have the last word on the moral of the story.
Good readers, bad readers
New research at Cambridge suggests that problems with reading may have more to do with trouble recognising rhythmic sounds, rather than the words on the page.
Good Samaritan (Exploring parables)
When it comes to teaching parables or other faith stories with a moral message, non-specialist teachers are sometimes faced with a dilemma as to how much they can adapt the story for their audience, without being disrespectful, and how best to draw out the key messages. One way round this problem is to invite a faith visitor in to tell the parable, and this is what happens at Fairlop Primary School in Essex. In this programme Christian worker Neil Poole works alongside reception teacher Jo Bailey to introduce her reception class to the parable of The Good Samaritan. Neil chooses quite a traditional version of the story, simplifying it for his young audience while keeping in key vocabulary. The masterstroke is engaging the pupils through participation, and Neil brings some costumes to help the actors feel the part. The dramatisation not only keeps the class focused but also helps them to recall the story in detail which is seen during a discussion exercise later in the programme.

The National Governors Association is lobbying for the introduction of compulsory induction training for new governors. In the light of this, three new governors review different types of induction training which are currently available. Annette Fisher tries a paper-based course, First Certificate in Governance , Nonye Chidomere works through Modern Governor , a new e-learning course, and Steve Pike attends a local authority training course. Annette and Nonye find their courses to be useful introductions which take only an hour or so to complete. But they recognise that they aren't substitutes for the in-depth, face-to-face local authority training to which Steve devotes two evenings.Judith Bennett, chair of the National Governors ssociation, adds her comments on the different courses and reiterates the point that, in order to be effective as a governor and to have confidence in the role, induction training is essential.

Graham Gannon's background is varied, ranging from DJ to Enterprise Fellow with the University of East Anglia. With his wide variety of experience, Graham sees himself as an entrepreneur and encourages others to look at how they can develop their mathematical skills to help earn a living.Graham struggled with maths at school because he didn't see its relevance in every day life, but now he visits schools and colleges to help students understand how important maths is in the real world.We follow Graham on one of his visits, where he gets a group of Year 9 maths students to design, cost and market a new MP3 player. He use a business simulator to predict how each group's MP3 player will perform in the market place.Through the game Graham supports and encourages the students to look at how crucial mathematics is to the decisions they make.

Grandma's junk (Lesson starters.)
This open-ended short play, featuring four characters, is designed to inspire groups of pupils to discuss how the play might develop and improvise alternative endings. The play sets up a dilemma for the four characters and is followed by a 25-30 second section of prompt questions under the heading What Happens Next? The National Curriculum Programme of Study for English at KS3 states that the range of speaking and listening activities offered should include group discussion, group improvisation and performance and the devising, scripting and performing of plays. This resource can be used to develop one or all of these activities.
Find out how Grange Primary School, Nottingham is making school fun and improving performance. The school has two shops, a canteen, a craft centre, museum, a TV and radio station, all run by fully trained pupils working to AS level standards. Not bad from a primary school which was under-achieving three years ago.The school aims to make learning relevant to everyday life and every Friday afternoon is timetabled for the children to work on their Grangeton enterprise. By the time the pupils reach year four they able to apply for management positions running the various enterprises in the village. In order to do this they have to apply and then be interviewed by pupils currently working in that field. Such is the success of the project the local secondary school have asked Grange Primary to help to develop Grangeton Village for secondary level.
Year 2 Teacher Melissa Harrison delivers the creative curriculum of Coney Hill Community Primary School by inventing characters like Granny Smith. What's more, Melissa has captured her pupils encounters with Granny Smith on camera - except Granny Smith has never been seen. She lives in a shed in the corner of the classroom and leaves notes with tasks for the children to do for her.In this programme we see Melissa's video and visit her school in Gloucester. This is followed by a discussion led by Consultant Adrienne Jones with Melissa, a colleague Danielle Brayshaw and parent Mandy, who says, Chloe came home and told me that she's done no work at school, she's had so many jobs to do for Granny Smith that they just haven't had time to do any work! The discussion covers the impact of this creative approach, differences between boys and girls, and how the pupils could make their own videos.

When Liz Owens took over as head teacher at Charles Dickens Primary School in London, the school was in special measures having failed inspection with problems in English, mathematics and science. Six years later, however, it had been transformed into one of the best schools in the area. This turnaround, and in particular the huge improvement in results in English, was seen as partly the result of an exciting and innovative approach to literacy. Using drama, art and music as a way in to reading and writing, and involving a Nigerian artist from the Tate and a professional musician in residence as well as many links to local arts organisations, the whole curriculum is now felt to be more integrated, with the children of all backgrounds more motivated.
Great expectations (Phil Beadle's masterclass.)
Teaching expert Phil Beadle guides a Year 10 English class through Charles Dickens' Great Expectations in this CPD resource full of lesson ideas. Phil, a former Teaching Awards teacher of the year, brings the classic novel Great Expectations to life using actors to recreate scenes and drawing on comparisons with life today. He encourages the class to consider why anyone would want to read 440 pages of small print, written a century ago. The drama of the text plays out before the students as the classic literary characters, Pip and Miss Havisham, are recreated.

Great lesson ideas. 2, Primary French
Give your children the confidence to perform their French, and learn alongside them' is the approach taken to French lessons at Beam Primary in Dagenham. We see four ideas for teaching French demonstrated by Catherine Cook and Kayleigh Hartley, helped by their French foreign language assistant, Dunia Sabil. 'Jacques a dit' is just 'Simon Says' in French, with exactly the same rules. The traditional French nursery rhyme 'Y'a une pie' is an easy sentence to construct, and once the pupils have sung it a few times they'll be ready to come to the front to try swapping the nouns and adverbs for new French words, making their own sentences. A little role play of a French cafe gives pupils the chance to perform their French, and prepare for foreign holidays. And finally an opportunity to learn a French dance gives pupils a wider cultural understanding of France.
Great lesson ideas. 5, Modelling light
Rachel Dixon, year 6 teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, presents her lesson on light. The objective of this lesson is to get her pupils to understand that light travels in a straight line from a light source, reflects off an object, then mirror and then into the eye. Working in small groups in the school hall, Rachel models what is happening with a torch, teddy, mirror and ribbon to represent the light. She then gets her pupils to build their own model then draw what is happening on a large sheet of A3. This programme is part of the KS2 Science Lesson Planning Pack on Light, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
Great lesson ideas. 6, The apprentice electrician
Tracy Stuart, year 4 teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, presents her lesson on becoming an Apprentice Electrician. The objective of this lesson is to get her pupils to problem solve using their current electricity understanding. Working in groups and using their electrician's toolbox, the pupils have to perform a variety of timed tasks in order to receive their certificate. Tasks include making a circuits with a light in it, making a circuit with a buzzer and making a circuit with two lights. Once these tasks have been successfully accomplished the groups are then asked to design and build a burglar alarm. This programme is part of the KS2 Science Lesson Planning Pack on Electricity, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
Great lesson ideas. 7, Fraction wall
Year 5 teacher Sophie Crump, at Burnham-on-Crouch Primary School, presents her lesson on fractions. The objective of her lesson is to help her pupils understand that fractions are part of a whole. After starting with a recap of the language of fractions, the class get to make their own fraction wall. Strips of A3 papers are used, which are then cut up into ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5 and so on. Different colours are used for each fraction and then compared to help show equivalence. This programme is part of the KS2 Maths Lesson Planning Pack on Fractions, Decimals and Percentages, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
Great lesson ideas. 8, Chessboard algebra
Michelle Bottomley, year 6 teacher at Tetherdown Primary School in North London, presents her lesson on Algebra. The objectives being that her pupils use their knowledge of the properties of number in order to solve problems, and use a symbol to stand for an unknown number. The lesson starts with the class trying to work out what is happening in a function machine given several input and output numbers. In the main part of the lesson Michelle gets her pupils to look for patterns when working out how many squares are in different sized chessboards, and then to see if they could predict how many squares in a 25 x 25 squared board. Finally Michelle presents the formula that could be used for any sized board, which the pupils use to test some of their predictions. This programme is part of the KS2 Math Lesson Planning Pack on Algebra, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
At St John the Baptist Primary School, Bromley, Jo inspires a Year 2 group with animals and a Year 5 with story-telling in art. She uses her slide shows of great artworks to inspire children in ways that spread right across the curriculum. Her first job is to win over her audience. She believes that to get the attention of the whole class you need to captivate the boys first, and there's nothing better than a severed head to do that! Poussin's Triumph of David not only features the head of Goliath, but contains opportunities to take the children's imagination to stories beyond the picture itself. Rousseau's Tiger in a Tropical Storm is an exciting opener for her animals theme for the Year 2s, and the class consider whether the tiger is hungry, or frightened of the lightning. She conducts the children making jungle sound effects and re-enacting scenes from other paintings. These are a few of the ways Jo animates her young audiences and brings great paintings to life.

Great school movies
Teachers TV has joined forces with Film Club to conduct the biggest survey ever undertaken of feature films set in schools. Thousands of teachers voted.Mark Eccleston presents a countdown of the top ten Great School Movies with clips from the films and comments from teachers, actors, film directors and leading academics.Mark says, This fascinating list reveals a great deal about the way teachers think of their profession and the way they d like to be seen. They seem to favour inspirational, sometimes overtly sentimental, accounts of school life, and have huge admiration for those on-screen teachers who dramatically change lives.Germaine Greer, who appears in the programme, believes there's a danger in movies stereotyping heroic charismatic teachers. She believes teachers don't have to be superhuman, they have to be good enough - like parents.Film Club's Beeban Kidron says of the results, These films entertain you but also challenge your perception of the world.
The great storm
How does a weather depression form and develop? The Great Storm of 1987 started out as a low-pressure system that formed over the Atlantic and matured on its journey towards the UK. It had the characteristics of a typical depression, with a warm and cold front, but due to its exceptional size and strength - and speed - it caused unprecedented and unexpected damage across the south of England. The film charts the different stages of the storm's journey from sea to land, drawing on the expertise of Professor Paul Hardaker of the Royal Meteorological Society, personal testimony from people who remember its impact, and archive footage from the BBC.

John Bayley is working with Deputy Head Barbara Lee at Grange Middle school in Harrow. Much of the school's current focus is on differentiation, and today Barbara is working with Canadian-born teacher Kristin Patterson. Kristin is teaching a Year 5 science lesson, which includes a mixed-ability group-work activity. Whilst some students are clearly on top of the task, others seem uncertain of their roles and confused about what's expected of them. In feedback, Barbara's challenge is to express her misgivings about the group work in a way Kristin can accept.
Group mentoring for trainees
A school mentor uses Teachers TV programmes saved on his memory stick to help develop teaching techniques. Dave Russell, deputy headteacher at Alexandra High School, watches a selection of Teachers TV programme such as ICT delivery and disruptive pupils with his trainee students.By keeping the videos on his memory stick, he can play, pause and discuss the videos with the group, helping them develop the skills to improve their teaching techniques.

Sarah Buckland and Angela Knight are Higher Level Teaching Assistants. They work in schools in Bristol. This programme follows them as they spend a day in each other's school observing each other teaching small groups and then exchanging observations. Later, with the help of a teacher colleague, they discuss strategies for successful group work.The aim of this programme is to raise the awareness of HLTAs as reflective practitioners and to show how reflecting on classroom practice can develop their understanding of teaching and learning.
Sue Cowley works with Baz Barrett, a Year 3 teacher at Ward End Primary School in Birmingham. Like many teachers at the beginning of their career, Baz is aiming for his young class to co-operate and work together, when he asks them to carry out group work activities.We observe a group work session in Baz's classroom. Some of the children find it difficult to work in groups. Sue watches the lesson back with Baz, and they discuss how to facilitate more productive group work activities and help prevent any misbehaviour.Sue provides a range of strategies as they discuss how to reduce the inappropriate behaviour that arises from the children during group work.
Starting with B for behaviour , this film takes an alphabetical journey through the key issues affecting group work, and features eight teachers from across the UK sharing their tried and tested strategies for success.For example, when it comes to choosing your groups, how important are attainment levels, and is there ever an appropriate time to let the children work in friendship groups? How do they decide when to intervene (and when not to)?During the course of the programme they talk about their different strategies for organising the groups, how they encourage children to develop the all-important group work skills (including a rather crafty method for keeping track of how many children have contributed in a group!) and what - in their experience - can go wrong with group work (and how to fix it).
Group work and feedback
Two expert reviewers forensically analyse film of teaching in action, offering some detailed and important pedagogical insights. They focus particularly on groupwork and feedback.The reviewers are Malcolm Reed and Sasha Matthewman, both English PGCE tutors from Bristol University, and experts in classroom teaching and practice.Malcolm and Sasha watch video of Claire McKenzie from Backwell School in Bristol teaching a Year 7 geography lesson. This lesson can be watched in full on the Teachers TV website in the programme Uncut Classrooms: Geography.By viewing and reviewing the footage in detail, Malcolm and Sasha are able to identify moments in Claire's lesson where interaction between pupils, and between herself and the class, provide important tips and insights into classroom practice.
Group work in D&T
Four DT teachers at Queens Park Community School in north London, adopt a range of group work strategies. In this programme, they watch a video of their group work sessions and discuss its implications.They agree on the exercise's usefulness and express surprise at how readily their pupils took to working in groups. They debate some interesting challenges, including the role of the teacher, when to intervene and when to leave pupils alone and how best to organise the groups.A common observation is that group work suits particular children well, especially those who are often not engaged in more traditional activities. All four reflect on the interplay between more and less able pupils, and how their expectations as teachers were sometimes dramatically challenged.KS3 Strategy consultant Gareth Stevens, from Harrow LEA, shares their observations, and encourages them to use see group work techniques as having a relevance in all sorts of lessons.
This film examines the work of Lev Vygotsky and Jean Piaget, illuminating the similarities and differences of their contributions to our understanding of the cognitive development of young children. Dr. Elkind uses their research and his own work to look at three aspects of intellectual growth: reasoning, visual perception, and language use. Children are seen both in interview situations and busily participating in an accredited child care center to illustrate Dr. Elkind's points about their ever-changing intellectual abilities.

A guest from India
At the start of their India project, teachers from Braunton Secondary School in Devon have used video to record their pupils' initial ideas. Deputy headteacher David Butt starts by recording his pupils discussion as they pose questions about India in a geography lesson. These are sent by email to their Indian partner school; before getting the answers, the pupils try to guess what the answers might be. Not surprisingly, when the answers come back there are a few surprises, like the length of the school day - from 8am to 8:30pm! The next stage is for the pupils to video a conversation with an Indian visitor, Rittika Chanda Parruck from the British Council in Delhi, which exposes some further misconceptions. In the discussion that follows, Rittika is joined by David, by the school's head of geography and by a local authority adviser. The group discusses the value of using video as a means of gathering evidence from the start of the project.
These lively innovative Guided Reading sessions involve revisiting two well-loved texts.At Gade Valley Primary, Herts, reception teacher Jenny Berry begins by encouraging the children to look at the book cover. She then reads a lively story about a frog who meets a wide range of animals. The children are helped to sequence this familiar story, joining in at key points using speech bubble prompts and relevant puppets. These puppets are then placed around the school garden and pupils are expected to retell the story sequentially at each puppet station. At Princess May School in Hackney Class 2 teacher Joy George is re-introducing her guided reading group to Little Red Riding Hood. Having focused on the plot sequencing, she moves the children onto matching physical attributes to the right story characters. They then look at punctuation and the decoding tricky words. Finally Joy gives a tip about the ideal size of a guided reading group.
Educational writer John Richmond presents the first programme in this series of three, which looks at guided writing and at a school which has embraced it. St Peter's Primary School in Telford has an excellent reputation for creative teaching and learning. We follow a Year 1/Year 2 class where the children are compiling factual guide books about castles. Teacher Nichola Lewis is helping the children to use challenging descriptive words from their vocabulary lists. Our second class is a Year 5/Year 6 group where the children are writing a suspense story, with teacher Claire James helping the children to really empathise with the protagonist . And it's not just the children at the school who are being taught guided writing; at the end of the programme, we briefly see a special parents' writing workshop in action.

Beal High School has rated secondary science teacher Gurpreet Grewal's lessons as good . We bring in top School Inspector Clare Gillies to assess one of Gurpreet's Yr 10 lessons. The Inspector's feedback after Gurpreet's lesson on Power Production highlights some clear areas for improvement. Then he's off to our clinic to get one-to-one CPD advice from our communications coach Ulrika Schulte-Baukloh and Advanced Skills Teacher Jigna Surani to work on the pedagogy. Gurpreet then has just three weeks back in the classroom to turn their advice into action, before the Inspector returns to observe a second lesson and deliver her final verdict. Will Gurpreet be able to raise his game sufficiently to go from good to outstanding?
